Blueprint Fundamentals: Interpreting Symbols and Specs

Blueprints are made up of highly-specialized notations that tell builders, machinists, electricians, engineers, and others exactly how items are assembled and what materials to use. Because they are needed to coordinate work across a wide spectrum of trades, learning to interpret these specifications is crucial. From a blueprint’s basic elements to the distinct features of construction, electrical, manufacturing, and machining blueprints, this program gives viewers a detailed primer on types of blueprints and how they are read. Students will see graphics that illustrate what is meant by basic, auxiliary, and sectional views; discover how CAD is used to create blueprints; and learn which career fields benefit most from blueprint training programs. A Shopware/MotionMasters Coproduction. (33 minutes)
